tech69 got a prius buttoned up and didn't notice til I was ready to pour in some coolant that the darn reservoir was cracked from the accident. Would have been no problem with most other cars but this is a can of sardines and the darn thing is moulded into the shroud, which makes it more of a hassle. All done and my knuckles can rest now.

This came in the mail today. My cheap HF impact went out after greasing it cause the darn detent pushed all the way in and jambed the motor. NO seal/ no work. So I researched and got this Milwaukee. They really are the best power tools nowadays. Love their cordless tools. This isn't their fuel one which boasts 750 ft lbs but at 450 and the price this was a steal.

Too Many Projects I, however, have PROOF I worked today...

I finished the toe board fab and install on Monday.





Then I spent 3 HOURS grinding down the entire floor replacement job...



I had to make a repair flange for the shifter hump.











Then I spent 3 hours removing the remnants of the old floor from the bucket seat mounts, cleaning and prepping them for install. 1 stud was broke, so I ground off the head that is spot welded, installed a bolt and tacked it on.







They are ready, except to run them thru the blast cabinet before paint and welding.

John long Got my five minutes in today. Cut off U-bolts, radiused brake lining, and installed 3/8 wheel spacers. Chassis now rolls freely. At least I was down there for a while.

It's made by American Motors, next question.

Today I got out there and lifted the Rambler up to do this stuff, but got side tracked when I figured I would fire the Gran Sport up (first time since Aug) and take it over to the rad shop as I saw they were still open when I passed them on the way home. He looked it over and waved a magic wand and sent me on my way. I will be using it if I have to but got to get that damn ***** Marge on the road....don't tell her I called her that.

tech69 put togethers suck on Monday, especially a support job on a Prius. with the old schools you can note where to leave panels cause you do have some play and for the most part final assembly will go smooth if you remember anything extreme that you did, even without marks. With old school supports you weld it in and it's not moving! With this prius you can get under hood specs, square it up perfectly to spec, have shouldered bolts, and still be battling that head light on final assembly. The difference is that thin crap twists a lot which gives you readings that are spec and when you bolt in that support it will fit differently depending how it reacts as you bolt it down. I kid you not, some of these cars just get ruined by the smallest hits these days.

Anywho, been researching a whole lot on battery powered 1/2" impacts after my air one went out, and Milwaukee seems to have it down with the battery powered ones. Great addition for when they want me to put on a knee in the lot so I can bring the darn thing inside to finish the repairs, so I ordered one of them 18V impacts and they sound awesome!

Too Many Projects Brian, no offense but you have NO IDEA what "rust out" is. That 60 year old car is more solid than many of the 20 year old cars in this area..
